schools of thought on how to deal with israel. mark perry is a foreign policy analyswho remains close contact with the hamas leadership. >> abu mazen has ga ve explicitly and said very explicitly that there will be no violence against israel and he will negotiate in good faith with israel. the problem is that hasn't gotten him anywhere. hamas has a totally different approach and their approach is resistant. they believe israel will only come to the table when they feel pain. >> warner: a bring number of palestinians see justification for that belief. last november a week of palestinian rocket fire from gaza and israeli air strikes led to an egyptian-brokered cease-fire between hamas and israel. as part of that, some israeli restrictions on gaza were eased. the year before, hamas secured the release of a thousand prisoners from israeli jails in return for handing over gilad shalit, the israeli soldier it kidnapped in 2006. >> it has sent a clear message to the palestinian people if you abduct soldiers the they will be released but if you sign agreements about w us about releasing priso

. then if you look at obama's foreign policy. what is its core idea? it is the same. it is looking at america as the great pirate in the world. america goes into afghanistan and iraq to take advantage, to get oil. america is seen ultimately as a looter, a thief on a global scale. in some sense obama's foreign policy is aimed at trimming back america. restoring the kind of global balance of power. now the important point to realize is that this is not some foreign thing. it has come to america in the 60's, it is part of american liberalism. if you listen to the stoifer america, it is a story of what? theft. how did we get america? we stole it from the indians. slavery is seen as robbing the free labor of african americans. so the whole story of america is the story of oppression. this is the liberal argument, it is broad scaled and it needs to be answered. in our film, we intend to answer it. this is not just about the makers and the takers. we hear a lot of talk about the productive people, people show are parasitic on society. obama's liberal has resident, it wins voters. why, it has a moral

disability protections, and the neocon belief in an expansionist foreign policy. and that's why party leaders like john mccain and lindsey graham are already pushing back on paul's rise. and it's why mitch mcconnell, who leads the senate caucus, originally backed paul's primary opponent in their home state of kentucky. on the level of policy debate, however, i think paul could be good for the gop. the party now has lost the popular vote in five of the last six elections, and yet most of its leaders still say their only problem is messaging, not substance. and that was a big theme at cpac this weekend. so while republicans started two wars that exploded the deficit, today, most of their budget proposals still are proposing the same foreign policy. now, paul is pushing the for actual policy change. he wants to reduce the military footprint and oversee the government's power to kill drones, to kill with drones, i should say. now, is that really libertarian or is that really liberal? i don't think it matters that much. i think it's a good debate over policy, not marketing that is overdue for this

the football game, but they can't tell you anything that's important. they don't know about foreign policy. they don't even know about the way that our government works and the structure of it and what things mean. and consequently, they have become the ignorant. they have become the unprepared. this is exactly what the founders of this country warned against. they said, our system of government is based upon a well-educated and informed populace. and if our populace becomes anything other than that, we will become a different country. they knew what they were talking about. [applause] and as witness to that fact. congress has a 9% approval rating. and yet, we return the people at a rate of 90% to congress. now, what does that tell you? it tells you that people go in the voting booth and they say, there's a name i recognize, i'm going to vote for that one. you know, they have no idea whether that person represents them or not and what i'm saying to people, the people of america today, is that we are responsible. this is a country that's for and of by the people and not for, of and by the g

the significance of this visit and what it means for u.s. foreign policy moving forward. when we come back, the water cooler watching democracy at its finest. another political brawl in the ukrainian parliament. we have diving and fighting in the parliament. more details when "way too early" comes back. max and penny kept our bookstore exciting and would always come to my rescue. but as time passed, i started to notice max just wasn't himself. and i knew he'd feel better if he lost a little weight. so i switched to purina cat chow healthy weight formula. i just fed the recommended amount... and they both loved the taste. after a few months max's "special powers" returned... and i got my hero back. purina cat chow healthy weight. >>> all right. time for the water cooler. democracy in action. ukrainian style. check it out in the parliament yesterday. where is it going to start? always looking for where it's going to start. push, push, push. just a melee breaks out. fistacuffs. somebody obviously spoke russian and they want to speak ukrainian. there was nearly an identical brawl back in decem

the last 12 years republican foreign policy game plan which is let's go in first and ask questions later, has been really undermined and sabotaged by both the american experience in iraq and the american experience in afghanistan. there's been a long tradition of the republican party but i think there's now a reluctance a caution that hasn't been there in the past about foreign intervention. >> woodruff: ron paul has struck a chord. >> he has at the moment. this is american leadership in the role believes america has an important role to play as a world leader including global order, free trade, free water ways, free commerce. that happens because of u.s. military. the idea of the party is not going to be that party. it happen. in the 19 20's the party shifted. for them to go back i have to sate. right now the move from the president of the other party, move intervention, move os tear taught, war exhaustion. when there's a threat from iran i still believe the republican party is a defense party and interveneionist party. he is leading the party one way, marco rubio is leading another.

to begin my remarks on benghazi with a small criticism of senator paul's stance on foreign policy. a constructive one, i hope. i love the guy and his filibuster was brilliant. long overdue. but while he was right on the constitution, he was wrong on the law of war, especially the distinction between a combatant in a noncombatant. conservatives cannot follow his definition of it now stands, or we will not deserve to be taken seriously on foreign policy. let's start in benghazi. the attack on the u.s. consulate in september was the worst national security failure since the original 9/11. it truly deserves the label scandal for three reasons. one because president barack obama and his administration lied about the attack. number two because the media aided the cover-up. and number three is because the president did nothing to rescue those at the conflict, including ambassador chris stevens. but benghazi was not just a national security failure. it was also a constitutional failure. the president has a constitutional duty to act as the commander in chief and he failed to do so. he did

. everybody is interested obviously in the foreign policy side like the end of the war in vietnam. but i noticed this in the second term of the bush administration there was more interest in the domestic policy. it is a real problem for historians because of the tapes richard nixon is not always very happy about his domestic policy. i was wondering since we are looking at the earlier period for next-gen, where would you put him in the new deal in the 1950's? would you say he is interested in a continuation of the new deal? what role does he see the government playing in the society? >> certainly think he had no desire to undo the new deal. she was very much aware and in favor of a catastrophic health plan. don't forget when nixon was growing up his family was poor, but he had two brothers who died of tuberculosis so there wasn't very good health care. one brother was 7-years-old, six or seven and then his older brother died when he was 25 and so she was -- so he was very much an internationalist and nixon was a big supporter of the marshall plan and voted for it and a lot of his sestak e
